School of Hard Knocks

School of Hard Knocks
School of Hard Knocks (SOHK) is a unique long-term intervention programme that uses weekly rugby coaching, classroom sessions and mentoring to improve attendance and behaviour at school with the aim of helping at-risk children avoid permanent exclusion and complete mainstream education in schools. In the fifth year of our partnership with SOHK, Harrow hosted the biggest SOHK festival yet with over 250 boys across year 9, 10 and 11 from SOHK partnership schools to play in a round robin tournament. Harrow boys in the Yearlings E, F, Junior Colts E and Colts C teams also played with members of The XV helping to run, coach and offer encouragement to all the boys. The day finished with a kit donation from Harrow to SOHK to help facilitate their sessions in the future.
